    "Focusing mainly on the seventeenth century, The Art of Philosophy explores the different ways in which visual culture enters into the teaching, study, and practice of philosophy. Highly original and filled with convincing arguments, this book is virtually the only treatment of a fascinating and largely unknown area in the history of philosophy. "The book Art, Artists and Pedagogy is a book that highlights philosophical perspectives on art in education. It is a book that references Gert Biesta's educational philosophy, but in dialogue with Deleuze and Guattari's immanent philosophy Biesta's powerful introductory chapter echoes throughout all 15 chapters.".

    A Companion to Art Theory Edited by Paul Smith and Carolyn Wilde. Paul Crowther is currently Professor of Art and Philosophy at the International He is currently preparing a book on reflexive social theo-ries of modernity and visual art. In his theory of Mimesis, Plato says that all art is mimetic by nature; art is an imitation of life. He believed that ‘idea’ is the ultimate reality. Art imitates idea and so it is imitation of reality. He gives an example of a carpenter and a chair. The idea of ‘chair’ first came in the mind of carpenter.
